The retreat will explore the “already and not yet” of the Kingdom of God that Jesus brings. In our longing for the “not yet” we often miss the “already” of God’s presence among us. Examining the four dimensions of our humanity: Spiritual, Physical, Social and Mental through the Gospel we will recognize how to attune ourselves to the presence within that longs to bring peace, healing, and reconciliation to the world.
